The Wiz and various other outlets are all over this, but we couldn't just sit back and say nothing when a rival program has FELONY charges filed against six of their players.
State College Police filed the felony charges against six Penn State players, including junior safety Anthony Scirrotto, who topped the Big Ten in interceptions last season, and junior corner Justin King, a 2nd team All-Big Ten selection. The six are accused of forcing their way into a party on April 1st and laying a beat-down on several people, including a man that was struck in the head with a beer bottle and beat while unconscious merely for trying to break up the scuffle.
Bond has been set at $50,000 for Scirrotto and $10,000 each for the other five. In a statement issued by the athletics department, Paterno and the staff said punishments would be levied after "due process has transpired".
Not surprisingly, the charges have vaulted Penn State to the top of the Fulmer Cup Standings.
